We look forward to welcoming you to our Ruidoso cabins. Here are the best directions to reach Ruidoso from Albuquerque and El Paso.
DIRECTIONS FROM ALBUQUERQUE AND POINTS NORTH
Take I-25 south to Hwy. 380, exiting the interstate in San Antonio (about 10 miles south of Socorro). From San Antonio, drive east on Hwy. 380 to Carrizozo, then continue east about 10 miles to Hwy. 37 – look for signs to Nogal and Ruidoso. Hwy. 37 will eventually come to a “T” intersection with Hwy. 48. Turn right on Hwy. 48 and drive south to Ruidoso.
Condotel’s office is located on Hwy. 48, locally known as Mechem Drive. Look for the Condotel sign on the building on the right at 1103 Mechem, about ¼ mile after the first stop light, just before Pioneer Bank. The center of Ruidoso is another 2 miles further south, on Mechem.
DIRECTIONS FROM EL PASO AND POINTS WEST
Leave El Paso on Hwy. 54 and head north, slowing down to go through the (tiny) town of Oro Grande and then on to Alamogordo. There is a bypass loop around Alamogordo that saves a few minutes. Otherwise, go through the heart of Alamogordo for gas or a snack. The latter doesn’t take too much longer, and both end up in the same spot. Follow the signs for Hwy. 54 North and Hwy. 70 East to Tularosa.
In Tularosa, bear right on Hwy. 70 East, up through Mescalero and on to Ruidoso. At the first stop light, turn left onto Sudderth Drive — this is the main road through the business district of Ruidoso and Midtown. After about 2 ½ miles you will come to a stop light with an Allsups convenience store on your right and Ranchers restaurant on your left. Turn right onto Hwy. 48, locally known as Mechem Drive. The Condotel office is located at 1103 Mechem, about 2 miles north on the left, just after Pioneer Bank.
DIRECTIONS FROM ROSWELL AND POINTS EAST
Leave Roswell west-bound on Hwy. 70. Drive for just over an hour before coming to Ruidoso Downs. About a mile after the horse racetrack you will come to a stoplight at the “Y,” where you need to bear right into Ruidoso on Sudderth Drive. After about 2 ½ miles you will come to a stop light with an Allsups store on your right and Ranchers restaurant on you left. Turn right onto Hwy. 48, locally known as Mechem Drive.The Condotel office is located at 1103 Mechem, about 2 miles north on the left, just after Pioneer Bank.
